Castara Retreats

Raw Food Holiday at Castara Retreats: 28th June – 5th July 2015

A tropical holiday retreat to explore nutritious, delicious raw plant-based foods
and learn how to prepare them yourself.

Following a hugely successful week in 2014, we are delighted to welcome back Gabriela Lerner, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, Raw Nutrition Coach and Raw Food Chef, who will be holding a week-long Raw Food Retreat in June 2015.
Holidays and retreats are an excellent way to try out a new way of life and eating. So what better way than to spend a week on a glorious Caribbean island to explore the beauty and flavours of raw foods, learn recipes that can be easily integrated into your busy life and practise some more advanced skills of enhancing raw foods to culinary heights. 

If you're new to raw food this is a wonderful opportunity to experience how raw food can give you more energy, help you lose weight, naturally detox and make you feel radiant. For those already living a raw food life style, the week is an ideal way to spend a holiday in the Caribbean whilst being served daily, delicious, nutritious meals and learn some new tricks of the trade. Although free of any animal products and starchy carbohydrates, raw food is not a restrictive diet but rather a lifestyle of eating the most delicious, fresh foods without the experience of guilt and 'paying for overindulgence'.

“It is a real delight to be able to offer you a raw food holiday retreat at Castara Retreats, which is rated as THE best holiday resort of Tobago & Trinidad on MyTobago.”, says Gabriella,

About Raw Food
Raw plant-based food is rapidly gaining in popularity all across the world as people recognise and experience the power of nutrient dense, alkalising foods that can put your body into peak performance. Even conventional nutritionists now agree that eating a diet with a high raw content is beneficial to your health and we all know about the '5-a-day' rule. Also called 'living foods', raw food uses plants in an uncooked state that retain their natural good enzymes to help our bodies’ process and assimilate nutrients fully. The results are a better functioning digestive system, a happier body, more energy, weight balance and an on-going natural detox effect.
